Application

Achromopeptidase is useful for lysis of Gram-positive bacteria that are resistant to lysozyme. Achromopeptidase, from Sigma, has been used for the isolation and molecular characterization of skin and soft-tissue bacterial infections.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Achromopeptidase is a lysyl endopeptidase that has a molecular weight of approximately 27 kDa. It works best between pH 8.5 -9. Approximately 500-1,500 μn/ml achromopetidase can be used to lyse cells at a density of OD600 = 0.6 over 2 hours at 37 °C.
Achromopeptidase is a lysyl endopeptidase with a MW of ~27 kDa. It is useful for lysis of Gram-positive bacteria that are resistant to lysozyme.
pH Optimum for activity: pH 8.5 - 9
Approximately 500-1,500 un/ml achromopetidase can be used to lyse cells at a density of OD600=0.6 over 2 hours at 37 °C.

Unit Definition

One unit will produce a change in A600 of 0.001 per minute per mL at pH 8.0 at 37 °C using a suspension of Micrococcus lysodeikticus as substrate (1 cm light path).

Here, we developed a sample preparation methodology for enzymatic lysis and sample heating for low-resource, point-of-care applications. We show an instrument-free chemical

Protocols

To measure achromopeptidase activity, this procedure uses bacterial cells and a turbidimetric rate assay. Turbidity is measured at 600 nm using a spectrophotometer.
